On Saturday, Al posted a photo of a hand-painted picture of Taylor’s Speak Now album cover.
Printed on the front of the picture is a plaque that reads: “Taylor Swift’s ‘Speak Now’ album was released on October 25, 2010. It sold 1,047,000 copies in its first week. You are one of the people who helped make that happen.”
In front of it, was the album booklet and CD displayed, as well as a note from Taylor to Al.
“Al, thanks a million! Love, Taylor,” it read.
The 68-year-old captioned the post: “Hey, @taylorswift remember when we would hang out on the @todayshow and your first appearance, you had a self #bedazzled guitar.”
“Wanna come by our @citi concert series this summer? We’d love to have you.”
The Today Show Citi Concert Series has some of the biggest names in music performing in the plaza for some of their biggest fans.
Last year’s performers included Harry Styles, Lizzo, Jack Harlow, 5 Seconds of Summer, Maren Morris, and more.
The only problem with that is Taylor is about to embark on her 50+ city Eras Tour next month all throughout the U.S., which runs until early August.
‘THIS FEELS LIKE AN EASTER EGG’
Many fans agreed with Al and fangirled with him as well.
They took to the comments to leave their opinions.
“Clever. Who can say ‘no’ to Al?” asked one follower.
“Is this an Easter Egg?” asked another.
A third added: “Love this booking tactic.”
“She will! Al Roker is kindly asking,” wrote one fan.
“Al, I feel like this is an Easter Egg,” said another follower.
“Clever campaign, Al. Work it!” encouraged another.
“How could she turn down Al?” asked a hopeful fan.
Many others said they would have to “shut down Times Square” because the demand would be too big.
TAYLOR ON TODAY
Taylor first appeared on the Today Show back in 2009, and performed songs from her debut and Fearless albums in front of a crowd of 100s of screaming fans.
Then, in 2010, she came back to do a concert series for Speak Now.
The now 33-year-old has also been interviewed on the show multiple times.
The Anti- Hero singer has also performed many times on the rival show, Good Morning America and made many announcements through that show as well.
GMA has seen her perform songs from her 2012 album, RED, as well as her seventh album, Lover.
Taylor is currently promoting her tenth album, Midnights, and is in the middle of her re-recording process, so she may surprise fans and do a performance on the Plaza.
